The Boy with The Curious Mark

Written By Yohann Devezy

Illustrated by Manuela Adreani

You shouldn't have to wear a Band-Aid on who you are.

HUGO was born with a beautifully curious mark. Although it’s something special, HUGO is concerned: he has never seen a rainbow mark on anyone else. But there must be someone out there like him! Determined to find that someone else, Hugo sets out on a rollercoaster of emotion and adventure. He searches crowded spots around his city, experiencing a rich array of human difference. His quest seems to be in vain. But just as he gives up, something amazing happens … This gentle and heart-warming story explores how it feels to be different, with a contemporary edge that will resonate with modern readers. HUGO will help children understand the importance and power of acceptance, no matter what types of differences they may encounter in others.
